The smells were heavenly and coffee just right to wake you up! The breakfast quiche was very tasty and perfect for a quick breakfast!

We always stop here for a latte and pastry on every trip to FH. Pasteries are baked on site. Crispy. Try the "days" pie. Both Berry and rhubarb were great just wish they were larger. The prices have gone up compared to a year ago....More

Definitely a local hang-out, and you will know why when you go. Great fresh baked goods, excellent coffee and a great warm welcome from the staff when you arrive. Hard to get a table but worth the wait.
